    Finally a Barber! and a couple tokens, plus keys found and returned

    The last three and a half weeks were pretty miserable. Started off with lower back killing me and then it went into sciatica that was even worse. So only a short hunt with grandson for worms. Then it was off to chiropractor, then a full body massage, neither helped and then to doctors for pills. Finally got to feeling somewhat better and then yesterday, a totally wasted day. Rode VA van for over three hours one way to VA hospital only to find out that my appointment had been cancelled. Then the customary wait all day before heading back three hours. But this morning I actually felt pretty and so I headed for my permission to get a couple of hours in. I hunted hard in this trashy area to only find one memorial. I finally managed two 44 cal round balls as I worked my way back to the truck. About 20 yards from truck, I found a dime and then 3 or 4 memorials. The ground was jack hammer hard and I had another "memorial" signal which I almost didn't dig for being so hot and tired. But I did and almost quit again because the digging was more like clawing and scraping. THEN I saw the thin glint of silver and immediately knew what it was, My first barber dime, 1911 D mint then a foot or less from there, a wheatie no date. Then the Oklahoma token and Garrett token before I got back to the truck. Not sure what the Garrett token is about, I guess the Oklahoma one is some sort of tax token. So, I was pretty stoked and headed to the Sonic to get a cold drink and on the way out spotted a set of car keys off the side of the highway. So I pulled over, picked them up, had a chevy key, jeep key and a ford key plus a remote. They had been run over a time or two but still in great shape so I had my wife to post them on Facebook. I was planning on using the radio and local paper to see if I could locate the owners. Thirty minutes ago, a woman contacted us, almost in tears as she said how they had been everywhere trying to find them only to see our post on Facebook. So, Keys have found their owner and all are happy. So, today really made up for not being able to do anything all that time. I have been telling my wife that there had to be a barber of some sort in this permission and I finally found one.

    Nice finds. I really like the Garrett token. Cool. Hope you continue to heal and feel better. I've had a bad lower back for a long time and I understand how it feels. Fell off a house roof as a teenager a long time ago.

    Sorry to hear about VA scheduling mix ups and back pain. May the great physician bring you the healing Balm of Gilead. Now to the finds. Congrats on your first Barber dime. I know they are a special find and I don't have a sack full of them myself. I really am fascinated with the WAY COOL Garrett 12 1/2 cent token. The patina is super nice on that one. Grateful you have seemed to rebound from your setbacks. Keep moving forward my friend!

    Awesome hunt. That barber is sweet. Good luck with the back problems. One of the worst things to have.

    Thanks to all, the back pain has been part of my life for the last thirty years or so, too much lifting the incorrect way. it is what it is. it just gets a whole lot worse at times...a lot of you all about that but you just deal with it as best as you can. The garrett token is pretty cool, hope to try to find out more on it later. That Barber dime is just one of the ole bucket list that I have been slowly finding. it really made my day as did the token. the lady, older woman, is a nurse and really needed the keys. I am a very blessed man. Jerry/DL

    I know social media can be amazing. But I am shocked that you found the keychain owner so quickly.
